Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em 1973 - 1978 Opening and Closing Theme (With Snippets)













Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em is a BBC television sitcom, created and written by Raymond Allen and starring Michael Crawford and Michele Dotrice. It was first broadcast in 1973 and ran for three series, ending in 1978. The series follows the accident-prone Frank Spencer and his tolerant wife, Betty, through Frank's various attempts to hold down a job, which frequently end in disaster.

The sitcom was filmed in and around the town of Bedford in Bedfordshire. It was noted for its stuntwork, performed by Crawford himself, as well as featuring various well-remembered and much lampooned catchphrases, that have become part of popular culture. In a 2004 poll to find Britain's Best Sitcom, Some Mothers Do 'Ave Em came 22nd. On 4 October 2015 it was reported that the BBC were planning a return of the sitcom, with Crawford and Dotrice purported to be involved in shooting scheduled for early 2016.

The news was met extremely positively on social media. It was confirmed on 18 February 2016 that the show would return for a one-off sketch for Sport Relief on 18 March with Michael Crawford and Michelle Dotrice reprising their roles. The one-off will feature a cameo appearance from Sir Bradley Wiggins.
